Forum: GratefulDead Subject: IA gets shout out on Veep

So I'm watching another hilarious episode of Veep and who does a political opposition researcher give a shout out to but our IA! (At mark 15:30- S3E7) Sadly no ready vid up (yet).

Best show on politics and our political process- bar none.

A few random clips > (NSFW!)

"Best show on politics and our political process- bar none."

If you can past "Elaine" as the VP.
Better than "House of Cards"?

Enjoy,

The current one with Kevin Spacey? Yeah, by a country mile.

The original with Ian Richardson- yes, but not by so much (and it is of a different time).

I think KS's HoC is an idealized take on how DC operators would like to think they operate. Veep is about how they actually function.

Veep's Armando Iannucci was also a show runner for The Thick of It- which I need to watch. I would love a Malcolm Tucker guest spot for Veep > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MSScBIopM8 (I wonder if the 'wordsmith has a side job... ;-)

Hmmm, watch seasons 3-5 of The Wire and get back to me on that :)

(Granted, I may very well be putting my foot in my mouth as I haven't seen Veep! Does HBO do comedy as well as they do drama?)

Hopefully I may revise and extend my remark to read, ""Best show on contemporary politics and our political process- bar none."- because my original sentence (or mis-write) just won't work anymore. ;-)

I always think of The Wire and Oz and Homicide together. Some excellent work there. (Though I have only watched- and will only- three episodes of Oz. Every time I see Christopher Meloni... among others.)

chris- tcb!

I haven't seen Homicide. Is it basically a network version of The Wire?

Oz was great, although it did take some time to get used to some of the love scenes :D.

Have you seen The Corner? It's a miniseries that is based off the book (written by David Simon and Ed Burns from The Wire).

It's sort of a precursor to The Wire. But, instead of focusing on dealers, it focuses on users.

Highly recommended.

Now I'm going to have to check out Veep damn it :)

No Veep for me, but there was a major Bob Weir reference on
Family Guy last Sunday. I might try to find it...
We are everywhere S
